OK, so this may be a very basic question - my daughter and I are novice cake decorators. She is enjoys working with fondant and is looking at recipes to try making her own.
But, neither of us has heard of liquid glucose - what is it? where do we find it?
Thanks for any help you can give!
You can find it at Michael's for sure in the cake decorating section right near the Wilton vanilla, etc. It comes in a tub, kind of like sour cream. It's thick and gooey.
Thanks for the info is it like piping gel? we'll be checking at Michael's then - maybe Hobby Lobby also.
its not piping gel. its more like corn syrup and its just corn syrup ( not light corn syrup) just regular stuff and you can get it at Michaels its buy the extracts! HTH
For some recipes you can sub corn syrup for glucose. Glucose is just thicker, but from what I gather is pretty much the same thing.
Wilton's glucose comes in the same type of container that the piping gel comes in, only it has purple on the label instead of orange.
If you buy regular (golden) corn syrup it leaves the fondant with a slightly darker hue. If you are able to find light (clear coloured) corn syrup the final product will be lighter. Corn syrup is a lot less expensive that Wilton glucose and works the same.
